make your child's first experience on snow a magical one!

Our children's beginner lessonS.

Our ESF levels start with standing on snow to moving gently down and stopping.
these are called OUR Ourson and Flocon levELS. 

Objective : To feel comfortable on the snow and to start moving in a controlled fashion.
Once your child has the confidence of standing on skis, moving slowly downhill and stopping on a flat area, they can now progress to our OURSON level which is the next stage above our basic Piou Piou introductory level.

Throughout the week your child will learn at their own pace with their ESF instructor and have fun at the same time.

We like to ensure children are allocated an ESF instructor for every 6 children (8 during school holidays). With this ratio we can ensure that your child will have the guidance and time allocated to them to make their stay a rewarding one.

  • Saturday classes during school holidays when it gets slightly busier!
  • "Ourson" Level: Your child is 5 years old and has never skied.
  • "Flocon" Level: Your child has successfully mastered the "Ourson" level.

A special touch during school holidays

Every Thursday during French school holidays we operate a special 'torchlight descent' for any children participating in our Flocon to Bronze Star group or private lessons. It's an ideal way to enjoy traditional ski resort activities.

  • Open to all children in group or private lessons working towards the Flocon or Bronze Star level.
